The long lines during lunchtime at Paradise Bakery & Café are the best indication of just how good the food is there. But don’t worry, they move quickly thanks to plenty of smiling, efficient servers and roaming floor managers – I call them sherpas – who help first-timers get with the program in Paradise.
Paradise Bakery & Café is on 21st South at about 10th East in Sugarhouse. And in the wee hours of the morning flour-dusted bakers begin making the daily bread, which is all baked fresh right at the Paradise Bakery. So a slice of toasted sourdough with your Mediterranean omelet for breakfast will be fresh and hot from the oven.
Ditto for the sandwiches served at lunchtime. The tuna sandwich at Paradise is made with rustic multigrain bread while honey-cured ham and Swiss comes on soft sourdough. But of course, you can have your sandwich at Paradise Bakery & Café made with any fresh-baked bread you like. At Paradise, they aim to please. I’m especially a fan of the scrumptious fresh tomato, basil, and mozzarella sandwich which comes on crispy ciabatta. By the way, each sandwich at Paradise Bakery & Café comes with a free cookie alongside. And you’d be nuts not to grab one of Paradise Bakery’s scrumptious chocolate chip cookies that they call “Chippers.” They taste like they were made in Paradise, which indeed they were.
Salad lovers will love Paradise too. There are a half-dozen freshly prepared salads at Paradise including Key West tuna pasta salad, tomato-basil salad, and Asian chicken salad, to name a few.
Well, delicious soups, sandwiches, salads, and more – why, it’s like eating in Paradise!
